At 707 Flora, we not only care about the health of your skin, but the health of the planet, too.
That’s why we’re always opting for Earth-friendly alternatives whenever we can – from our green cartons made with wind-recycled energy, to the ingredients in our CBD skin care formulas.
Today, I want to talk about one such alternative that’s much better for your skin and the planet than its eco-damaging counterpart – castor oil beads!
Castor Oil Beads - An effective, natural alternative to microplastic beads, these biodegradable beads are derived from the castor plant and treated to create a non-irritating exfoliating polish that brightens and revitalizes skin.
Can microplastics get stuck in your pores?
Recently, @emickkah on TikTok claimed her esthetician stopped mid-facial to explain she had something orange and red stuck in her pores. When asked what face wash she used, she immediately knew the culprit:
“Neutrogena beads have been stuck in my face,” she says. “Stuck in my face!”
After the esthetician extracted the tiny plastic pieces, @emickkah vowed to stop using her face wash with microplastics and urged others to do the same.
So, microplastic beads not only pollute the planet and irritate the skin – they also can get stuck in your pores, causing more build up and irritation. No thanks!
For a skin- and Earth-friendly alternative, try 707 Flora’s Core Cleanser that contains Castor Oil Beads.
Unlike their microplastic counterparts, castor oil beads are a natural alternative that are water soluble, eco-certified, biodegradable, and gently exfoliate the skin without irritation.
